MSC Cruises have just launched the latest addition to their fleet with the christening of “MSC Divina” in elegant style at a ceremony held in Marseille, France. The event was opened with an aerobatic and jet plane show performed by the Captens Aerobatic Display Team and the Breitling Jet Team.
Italian screen legend, Sophia Loren, who is Godmother to “MSC Divina”, as well as all of the other ships in MSC Cruises’ fleet, performed the duty of cutting the red and green ribbons, which sent the traditional champagne bottle breaking across the bow of “MSC Divina”. A gala dinner and entertainment followed.
The christening in Marseille continues MSC Cruises’ tradition of christening its ships in different European ports. “MSC Divina” is the 12th ship in their ultra-modern fleet and represents the embodiment of Mediterranean style. I attended the christening of “MSC Poesia” in Dover, England, so I have first hand knowledge of this Mediterranean style and elegance. Sandra T.
